“Dr. La Puma thoroughly understands the medical importance of treating people who are overweight.  He coached me thru 87# of weight loss, one-on-one, even though I am only in Santa Barbara once a year.

“And my cholesterol was still out of sight. So I enlisted a secret weapon: John La Puma. Espousing the food-as-medicine mantra, Dr. La Puma is an internist, professional chef and former culinary-arts professor….these dietary changes may well remove the need for many people to take medicine, and lower their dependence on them for many others.”
